Red Giant Releases Trapcode Suite 15.1

ARTIST: TERRITORY STUDIO | TERRITORYSTUDIO.COM

Red Giant has released Trapcode Suite 15.1 – a free update for Trapcode Suite 15, the company’s set of tools for creating 3D motion graphics and visual effects in Adobe After Effects. This update includes new text and mask-based particle systems as well as advanced shadowlet features in both Trapcode Particular 4.1 and Form 4.1. In addition, to take advantage of these new features, the Designer has been updated and over 40 new presets have been added. This update comes just a few months after the launch of Trapcode Suite 15, which includes the brand new Dynamic Fluids physics engine for creating particle systems that interact, swirl, and mix in a realistic fluid environment.

The Trapcode Suite includes Trapcode Particular, Trapcode Form, Trapcode Mir, Trapcode Tao, and Trapcode Shine.

New in Trapcode Suite is Trapcode Particular 4.1, which allows users to create organic 3D particle effects, complex motion graphics elements and more.

New Features in Particular 4.1 Include:

  • Text Emitters – Use text as an emitter, speeding up the creation process dramatically from previous versions. No precomping required. Create write-on effects by controlling the reveal of particles along text paths.
  • Mask Emitters – Use masks as an emitter, making it simple to create uniquely shaped emitters or to use parts of an image as the source of particle emissions. No precomping required. Create write-on effects by controlling the reveal of particles along mask paths.
  • Updated Designer – New in this version is support for text and masks, making it possible to create text and mask path-based effects directly in the Designer.
  • Shadowlet particle type matching – Match the shadowlet shape to the particle type for shadowing that matches the source. Previously, all shadowlets were circular.
  • Shadowlet softness – Control the softness of your shadowlet.
  • Presets – 21 new presets have been added to give you instant results and help you get started with new features. There are now over 355 presets included with Particular.

Also new in Trapcode Suite is Trapcode Form 4.1, which enables users to create immortal particle grids and 3D particle objects in After Effects.

New Features in Form 4.1 Include:

  • Text Forms – Use text as a base form, speeding up the creation process dramatically from previous versions. No precomping required. Also includes options for write-on effects that control where along the text paths particles are created.
  • Mask Forms – Use masks as a base form, making it simple to create forms with the After Effects mask/path tools, or to use parts of an image as the source of the form. No precomping required. Create write-on effects by controlling the reveal of particles along mask paths.
  • Updated Designer – New in this version is support for text and masks, making it possible to create text and mask path-based effects directly in the Designer.
  • Shadowlet particle type matching – Match the shadowlet shape to the particle type for shadowing that matches the source. Previously, all shadowlets were circular.
  • Shadowlet softness – Control the softness of your shadowlet.
  • Presets – 21 new presets have been added to give you instant results and help you get started with new features. There are now over 170 presets included with Form.
